September 13th

Yep! We've set a date...September 13, 2011. That's only a couple of weeks from now. I'm getting nervous, but I'm so anxious, too.

August 30th

Next Tuesday, a person from the school district wants to come to interview me and my donor. They want to take our picture and write up an article to send to the media. Check out the newspaper, I guess.

September 1st

Next Thursday, I have an appointment to meet with the pharmacists at Christ Hospital. They want to do some education about my transplant medication.

September 6th

This is the day it becomes real, I think. I will get one more blood test, a chest x-ray, and an EKG. I will also meet one more time with the surgeon, the transplant coordinator and the social worker. I will also pre-register for my surgery.

September 13th

On the big day, I have to report to the hospital at 6:00 am. The surgery will start at 7:30 am. That doesn't give me much time to think about it!

  1. So, so exciting! I look forward to the newspaper article. I'm going to be at Christ hospital the day before to get a much less serious surgery - but still - they day before :)
    I expect I'll be gone by the time you get there. I'll be thinking of you and praying for you and your donor. Love you!
